Short source control history

The source code repository for sanskritgrammer has less than a year of continuous activity. This likely is a relatively new project.

A short history is not necessarily a bad thing (all projects have to start somewhere!) but often, newer projects are changing rapidly and are thus less stable. They are also often innovative and exciting!

As this project matures, a longer source control history in conjunction with recent activity might indicate that the project has enough merit to hold contributors' interest for a long time. It might indicate a mature and relatively bug-free code base, and can be a sign of an organized, dedicated development team.

Note: The source code for sanskritgrammer might actually be older than the source control history can reveal. Many new projects begin by incorporating a large amount of source code from existing, older projects. You might be able to tell whether this is the case by looking for a rapid rise in the amount of code early in the project's history.

Few source code comments

sanskritgrammer is written mostly in Perl.

Across all Perl projects on Ohloh, 27% of all source code lines are comments. For sanskritgrammer, this figure is only 18%.

This lack of comments puts sanskritgrammer among the lowest one-third of all Perl projects on Ohloh.

A high number of comments might indicate that the code is well-documented and organized, and could be a sign of a helpful and disciplined development team.

Stable Y-O-Y development activity

Over the last twelve months, sanskritgrammer has not seen any change in activity. This may be a good sign, and an indication that development is continuing at the same pace and not dropping off.

Ohloh makes this determination by comparing the total number of commits made by all developers during the most recent twelve months with the same figure for the prior twelve months. The number of developers and total lines of code are not considered.

No recent development activity

The source code for sanskritgrammer has not been changed in over a year.

Over 75% of all projects on Ohloh have no recent activity. Open source has a "long tail" of projects whose developers have moved on. But the code is still there for all to benefit from!  

For this measurement, Ohloh considers only recent changes to the code. Over the entire history of the project, 2 developers have contributed.
